Rising Sun Solar was founded in 2004. They provide solar services for residential, commercial, non-profits, government and multifamily facilities in the state of Hawaii. They have been diligently working to help Hawaii maintain the NET Metering Law and allowing more PV systems to be interconnected to the grid. And they continue to be present for the PUC proceedings that relate to regulation and legislation of the Hawaii State Energy Policy. Rising Sun Solar is also a North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) certified solar PV installer.
Rising Sun Solar has payment options to fit just about any need and they are as follows:
It's always great to see a company involved and giving back to the community in any way they can. Rising Sun Solar offers a community heroes program that provides teachers, firemen, lifeguards, police and military members with special benefits, discounts and other incentives.
Unfortunately, the Rising Sun Solar website doesn't provide any of their terms of service such as the length of their contracts. Or, whether or not they offer moving services. Moving services are an important feature you might want included in your contract, especially if you ever need to have your roof replaced. Therefore, before you sign anything make sure you find out if they offer this service, whether or not it's included in your contract and if not, how much that service will cost, if they offer it at all.
System monitoring plays an important role when it comes to your solar energy equipment. Most solar providers offer some type of system monitoring; however, Rising Sun Solar doesn't disclose this information. System monitoring will tell you how much energy your system is producing and/or how much energy you are using at any given time. Additionally, it will notify the solar company if your system ever encounters a problem. So Rising Sun Solar should be disclosing whether or not they offer system monitoring and if there is a charge for that service.
Rising Sun Solar has some great things to offer, including a wide variety of payment options so there's something for everyone. They are continually fighting for Hawaii's net metering program, and they offer a community heroes program, which we haven't see other solar companies do. However, although their website is pretty good, we would like to see them be a little more transparent when it comes to their terms of service, system monitoring and whether or not they offer any type of moving services.
We feel Rising Sun Solar is a reputable solar services provider and with a little research could be a good fit for you and your particular solar needs. However, you should always perform your own due diligence before making any final decisions.
